Making a Splash - Droplets, Jets and Other Singularities
(March 20-24, 2017)

Description

This conference will explore several themes: (a) physical and computer experiments on the formation of singularities in fluids through state-of-the-art simulations and high speed, high resolution imaging of droplets, filaments, jets, splashes, jumps, and vortical structures, and (b) the development of theoretical models for the analysis of such phenomena. Our principal goal is to stimulate the interaction between analysts, modellers and experimentalists in the area, especially since much of the experimental work remains to be explained.
